So I've been notified by my teen daughter that my husband and I have been demoted from the #1 and #2 spot on her friends list on Myspace to #9 and #10. The person who gave her life, fed her from my body, taught her everything she knows today is now #10. *Sigh* I guess I should've expected this when she would rather spend time with all her friends than me. When she spends more time hugging and talking and sharing secrets. When I am nosy and annoying to her and the only time she is civil to me is when she wants something. When she's upset because she thinks I'm invading her privacy when I go on Myspace and because she thinks I'm the "Myspace police!
It's a thankless job being a mother. She is my only child and gone are the days when she depended on me and thought I was the most awesome person she knew. It's very depressing and it's hard to let go. I wasn't ready for this day to come so soon, but I guess I have to deal with it. I should appreciate that she still kisses me when I drop her off at school, but I'm sure next year that will change. She is going into High School and it's very hard to believe. When I look at her, I still see the 3 year old that would give me Monkey Love. Goodbye Monkey Love, ooh ooh, aah aah. :(
